Quotes

Principal Verge: I get it. Listening to your loud music, tripping out to Fraggle Rock. But the question is: What does the future hold for Clapton Davis?
Clapton Davis: Well, I am starting my own music site. Its going to list new releases and review albums from bands that nobody's heard of except for me and if they have I'll just dismiss them with scathing comparisons to avant-garde folk rockers. Everything's great on a ultra precise one hundred point scale and there's no place for feedback. If readers want to bitch about ...

Gee, I Wonder Why the Reviews Here are so Polarized...? Duh...!
15 September 2012 | by (Sunny Southern California, USA) – See all my reviews

Come on... By just a brief glance at the reviews here it is glaringly obvious that half the people love it and half the people hate it. Soooo, obviously this is gonna be one of those films that if it indeed is your kind of thing (as a few of the reviewers here clearly state in their summaries) and if this kind of writing and humour is up your alley, so to speak, then yes, you WILL love it as I did.

This film is probably one of THE sharpest and cleverest 'Teen Comedies' ever written; yes, a lot of the humour is crass and obvious also, but the sharp stuff is frigg'n great! And just the TOTAL and I mean TOTAL off the cliff, absolutely NON-sequitur scenes are so damn funny, such as the time traveling bear and alien angles. Hilarious! And, within the dialog are some really clever self-referential comments so amazingly bent back upon themselves multiple times, that you REALLY have to pay attention (assuming you are at all interested in the first place) in order to catch most of them. AND, if that is not enough, you have some pretty good atmosphere here and there tossed in at odd places that also works pretty dang well.

Just think of 'SCREAM' as a very, VERY primitive, rudimentary starting point; then, mix in huge quantities of crack, x-tacy, and liberal amounts of David Lynch Lite, and that's pretty much what you have. I would say that probably the main criteria as to whether you will like this movie or not will depend on how much you enjoy razor sharp, lightening fast dialog and concepts, BUT, also mixed in with a fair amount of crude teen humour too. If, say, 'ANIMAL HOUSE' is your idea of clever, than you probably should just keep on moving because there's nothing to see here... But, if you like your humour sharp and way, Way, WAY the hell off the wall and coming from minds that are CLEARLY pharmacologically enhanced, and I DO mean enhanced, then this is indeed your kind of stuff...
